Thank you so much for the kind words!

Ava DuVernay’s documentary had me on lock from start to finish.

I was born in the States but grew up in Nigeria, so I didn’t have an overall sense of how people of color have been brutally manipulated by the system.

It makes me so angry now because I recall when I first came back here to attend college — and White people would constantly praise Africans and label Black Americans as “lazy” and “less ambitious.”

I believed them because I was young and misinformed. But, that filtered away quickly as I got older and peeped the injustice right in front of me.

13th takes it to another level. There is no disguising the truth. And it hurts!
